LITTLE FALLS — The Morrison County Historical Society is hosting its annual November New Member Month.

The organization, which has been preserving and sharing the county’s history since 1936, has been a membership organization since its inception.

“Members are vital to the Morrison County Historical Society’s success,” stated Mary Warner, executive director for the organization, in a news release. “We count on them for their interest and encouragement, as well as the history so many of them share with us. Their contributions to the organization are invaluable.”

The historical society owns and operates The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum in Little Falls. Its tens of thousands of collections items include 3D artifacts, family files, past county newspapers, photographs, maps and a wide variety of archival materials related to all aspects of Morrison County’s history. The collection also includes history of the area before the county was formed, from the history of indigenous people to archaeology.

The historical society invites new members to join the organization during the month of November. Those who establish new memberships in November will receive a free copy of a historical society publication. They may choose one of the following: “Central Minnesota Remembers Vietnam,” “Sorting for History: Leaving a Legacy Through Your Possessions,” or “The Story Behind the Tat: Tattoo Art in Central Minnesota.”
